A Big Thank-you to the Mainstream Media

OK, I'll admit it. I was seething. I was furious at the treatment that Sarah Palin was getting in the MSM. Yes, I've seen the left-leaning bias for years. Yes, it has angered me before. But this was different. This was someone about whom conservatives could finally be excited. This was someone who shared our values. This was someone whom I decided two months ago that I hoped John McCain would choose as his VP running mate, though I didn't think he would. This was our candidate on the Republican ticket, and the MSM was doing its level best to rip her to shreds.

For five days we heard nothing but "lack of experience," "pregnant teenage daughter," "wasn't properly vetted," "small-town mayor," "should be dropped from the ticket," blah, blah, blah. I admit, I was furious.

My mistake. I should have been thrilled. The media managed to do only one thing: 37.2 million viewers for Sarah Palin's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. 37.2 million viewers, tuning in to find out who this women was. 37.2 million viewers who found out that she's charming, and tough as nails; small-town values, and big-city sophistication; the new girl on the block, and fully prepared. 37.2 million viewers who saw what many have called the greatest acceptance speech by a vice-presidential candidate ever.

Without the MSM's relentless attempt to destroy Sarah Palin, there's no way that 37.2 million viewers would have tuned in, and that would have been a shame. They would not have known what a fantastic candidate Sarah Palin is and what a great choice John McCain made.

A big thank-you goes out to the mainstream media!
